As we get closer and closer to the end of the school year, our students don’t cease to impress us in a daily basis.
For instance, 6th graders and 7th graders are presenting their Ancient Greek projects and Middle Ages respectively in Humanities and some of them have got really creative! the proof is in (eating) the pudding:
Talking about incredible students…this are Christian’s words:
Last week the MIS track team competed in the Copper League Championship meet. While all our athletes performed very well, we did have two students who qualified for the Meet of Champions which took place on Tuesday. While taking 2nd overall in the 1600 meter run in the copper league championship last week, Sage Brooks qualified for the Meet of Champions where she finished 4th in the 1600 meter run, going against the fastest 8th grade girls in all of Missoula County. Way to go Sage! Additionally, Gillian Sherrill won the high jump in the Copper League Championship which then qualified her for the Meet of Champions. It was a hard fought battle in the pouring rain between Gillian and another strong athlete she competed against throughout the track season. Gillian persevered and took home the title. She finished first overall in the girls’ high jump. While it’s easy to point to Sage and Gillian’s accomplishments as proof of a successful track season, but the real success is in the names I did not mention who were dedicated and worked hard to improve their times and distances in their events. While only Sage and Gillian qualified, a number of our other athletes were mere seconds and/or inches away from qualifying in their events. I could not be more proud of the group and how hard they worked this year. I’m already looking forward to next year and how I can improve the program for the next group of track stars. Christian.
Finally, the first ever MIS Open Mic is coming to MIS on June 2nd. We are encouraging 6th and 7th graders to perform and parents are welcome to attend. Also, don’t forget our graduation on June 7th at 4pm at the UM Recital Hall. We have a wonderful show planned! We hope to see you all there!
A quick reminder here: please remember that there will be no school on Friday, May 26th (Professional Development), and Monday, May 29th (Memorial Day).
MIS Spring Carnival!
